Social Responsibility

We think it is important that everyone in the Netherlands has a healthy future. We would therefore like to contribute to the health promotion of society. For example, we support (academic) hospitals in various medical scientific studies. These investigations often run for several years and we follow the developments closely.

In addition, we support regional initiatives of social welfare and sport. We believe that sport is healthy and that sport should be accessible to everyone, from young to old. Both for top athletes, amateur athletes and athletes with a disability.

Below you can see a selection of the partnerships. Activities we are proud of.
